I watched a college student put on makeup before she went socializing. She wasn’t attracting any potential partners and didn’t know why. I was puzzled too because she is very attractive and very concerned with their appearance. Too concerned.
As she was putting on make-up, I got the distinct sense that she was gearing up for battle. Like she was putting on armor to meet the enemy. She was putting on very hard energy so that she would not be hurt by rejection. But she was actually prettying herself up with male energy.
No wonder she wasn’t attracting anyone. She was resonating more as a warrior than a receptive female. I believe this happens with women more than they realize. I think this is one of the reasons why some men don’t like a women wearing a lot of make-up. They see it as a threatening more than enticing.
